13 & 14 December 2023, KBC Brussels
KBC organizes for the second time an exclusive 2-day Winter School for a selected group of PhD candidates and postdocs of the 5 Flemish universities.
Focus of this year’s edition: an interdisciplinary case competition to solve real-world Environmental, Social and Governance problems defined by Umicore, Janssen Pharmaceutica and KBC.
It is no longer possible to participate in the case competition.
It is still possible to come and listen to the many inspirational talks offered by KBC employees. Please, register before 27 November 2023.
This call aims at PhD candidates (≥ 3rd year of their PhD trajectory) and postdocs of the 5 Flemish universities (and beyond) who
a) want to get an inside view of the corporate world, and reflect on labour market trends and challenges, corporate social responsibility (CSR), company culture, …;
b) want to learn from PhDs coming from different academic backgrounds why they decided to transfer to the corporate world, which competences they brought to the work floor, and which competences still needed further developing;
c) want to expand their professional network.
Why participate in the case competition?
KBC puts great emphasis on diversity, on diverse teams and diverse expertise to solve problems in a sustainable way, and therefore welcomes early-stage researchers from all research backgrounds.
What to expect?
Last year’s participants formed a Linkedin group that might be interesting for your reference.
The registration to participate in the case competition is CLOSED. Use the link above to register for attending the talks.
